Renault R26 - engine 06 October 2006

If Ferrari do have a minor power advantage over Renault, it shouldn't be too much of an issue for the champions at Suzuka, where torque and flexibility are more important than output. The power range of Renault's RS26 V8 should be increased to provide a smoother throttle response. This will not only make the car even more driveable, it will help reduce tyre wear, which can be high at this track due to its highly abrasive surface.
